Autonomic Providing Pre-Programmed Death of Cubesats for Avoiding Space JUNK

Abstract

Apoptotic Computing is inspired by the apoptosis
mechanism in biological systems. This mechanism
provides security for the overall system by having a preprogrammed
death and indeed a death by default at, for
instance, the cellular level. It has been argued that this
approach should be included in our modern
ubiquitous/pervasive computer-based systems.
This paper presents a first step prototype ultilizing
apoptotic computing for CubeSats, pre-programming
death with the intent to ensure that CubeSats do not add
to the proliferation of Space Junk. In addition, to support
that apoptotic mechanism, autonomicity (selfmanagement)
is utilised and the paper considers more
general swarm task assignment and control protocols.
